Fodor's Expert Review Hidden Valley Inn & Reserve

4 Cooma Cairn Rd., Mountain Pine Ridge, Cayo, Belize Fodor's Choice

Sitting on 7,200 acres, Hidden Valley has more than a dozen waterfalls, at least two private caves, and 90 miles (150 km) of hiking and mountain biking trails. The entire lodge has an old-school colonial feel, and the estate grounds, including the waterfalls, are exclusively for guests and not open to the public. All the cottages have mahogany furnishings, tile floors, and brick fireplaces. Meals and drinks are served in the lodge's main house, which has vaulted ceilings and four fireplaces. After dinner, sip coffee grown on the premises. There's a full meal plan and all-inclusive packages (three-night minimum) with lodging, meals, drinks, tours, and transfers from Belize City available.


  • Charming lodge atmosphere
  • Wonderful waterfalls
  • Excellent birding and stunning pool


  • Meals are pricey
  • No air-conditioning
  • Loss of many mature pines due to the pine beetle means it can be hot and dry on the trails
